[PREVIEW] New Japanese Single! - Bolero (Release 01/21/2009)
Listen in a little better quality: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNBDpCvnlD4&fmt=18
This was performed during their MUSIC JAPAN show special. What do you guys think? Initial thoughts before hearing the good quality full version?
A interesting tid bit, "Bolero" is actually a Spanish word! (Coincidence or does this mean DBSK is acknowledging their Spanish fan base? D: Who knows, but its exciting nonetheless!) Though its not confirmed if the preview song in particular is Bolero -- it might be 忘れないで, the other track in the single.
Its very melancholy and epic-like, totally PERFECT for a movie or a heart wrenching drama ;__; Avex and SM Ent know what they're doing after all - its perfect timing and change of taste after their 2 month promotion of dance songs such as Mirotic and Wrong Number. I was wondering why they weren't performing their other slow songs from the album - it might be due to their Japanese activities, to keep people waiting for their ballads. Not only that, during the winter/christmas season in Japan, its customary for most artists to release melodic or sad songs to fit the season/feeling. (Which is why when DBSK previously released Doushite during the summer, it was shocking to some because it was a great song for an artist to save up for their winter single release).
I am sure this song will give the other artists the run for their money ^^ Can't wait for the MV!
